Samsung Galaxy S - Has a rubber skin on the back of it and that's it.

The front of the screen is totally exposed. Have dropped it once on Concrete (My heart stopped when it slipped out of my hand) - but it survived with a minor dent in the bottom right corner.

Screen is NOT EASY to scratch, I have actually attempted too. No scratches yet.

And, phone is stored in any pocket I get my hands on first.

I use a beautifully made soft leather case for my HD2, which closes with a zip and has soft interior padding to protect the screen. It also has an outer pocket for storing my earphones. A short loop goes over my wrist when I need to use both hands (to carry beer, say!) - otherwise I carry it.

Cheers,

George

I carry my SGS in my back pocket enclosed in a Krusell leather case, always remove it from my pocket when sitting down. The case makes the phone look a bit bulky, but its well protected and I don't have a screen protector on it.

Why does no-one make a beautiful slim leather combo wallet phone case?
